AMG GT launch live video

MERCEDES-BENZ’S POWERMAD AMG division is set to launch a brand new sports car at 6.30pm BST this evening (September 9), and you can watch the big unveil  live here.

The Mercedes-AMG GT may not have gull-wing doors but it is the spiritual successor of the SLS sports car, with a long bonnet housing a hand-built 4-litre V8 BiTurbo engine producing more than 500bhp.

The two-seat coupé is aimed at drivers of machines like the Porsche 911 Turbo, Audi R8 V10 and Jaguar’s F-Type R and is expected to cost over £100,000 when it goes on sale at the end of the year.

For all the details, follow the launch from AMG’s HQ in Affalterbach, Germany tonight live between 6.30pm and 7pm BST (that’s 7.30pm to 8pm local time) right here – it should play in the video below.

You can also follow the launch on Twitter via @ST_Driving and tweet along using the hashtag #AMGGT. For more photos, head to our Facebook page.
